Psalm 3:1-8

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space, pleading our fears to you. We are challenged by others who place their beliefs in idols and other gods. They scorn and threaten us. Even our own children attack and threaten us when we express our love and trust in you. We feel you draw near and wrap us in your peace. You are our refuge and strength. With you guiding and protecting us, we will fear no evil.

People are attacking us and the world is in chaos and turmoil. The world tells us there are many who are trying to destroy us and that you will not deliver us, let alone protect us. You are our Faithful One, you are our shield. Thank you for the dialogue between us and you. Thank you for giving us enough rest and peace for the coming day.

I feel your peace surrounding me today, Yahweh Shalom (God of Peace), and thank you for…

We bear your image; others see we are your children and cannot harm us. Though they choose not to acknowledge you, they cannot deny your sovereign place as Creator of all things. We will step with courage upon your path with full faith in you as our guide.

With joy we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
